The pub stands a few feet from the medieval tower called Fishergate Postern and is just around the corner from Fishergate Bar (or gateway). Medieval York was the second largest and second most important city in England. The existing stone walls which surround it, and the bar gateways into the city, were built during this period. The Postern was built in c1500, on the banks of the River Foss, which was then much wider and now passes behind this site.
